Protesting War Criminals When They Converge on NYC in September 2011


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 21 June 2011

As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, we are beginning to learn of the arrival in NYC for various conferences and assorted speaking gigs of major US war criminals – characters such as Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo and Michael Chertoff. This may well prove to be the biggest gathering of such characters ever.

These are the people who brought us ten years of the “war on terror.” These people should be indicted and prosecuted for their crimes against humanity. The brutality with which the US government exercises its “war on terror” is condemned both by the court of international public opinion and by the principles of international law governing human rights. The expanding wars of aggression, beginning with Afghanistan and Iraq, and the torture of detainees are clearly defined as war crimes by the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Conventions, the Convention against Torture and other treaties to which the United States is a signatory.

People of conscience must insist on accountability for the actions of U.S. officials. The status of the United States as a major world power does not make its officials less accountable for their crimes than those of the former Yugoslavia, Cambodia or any other country.

Check the calendar on www.WarCriminalsWatch.org frequently as we update September appearances.
